Why We Test Concrete Compressive Strength after 28 Days?

2014-8-14  When, its strength have reached 99% in 28 days, still concrete continues to gain strength after that period, but that rate of gain in compressive strength is very less compared to that in 28 days. After 14 days of casting concrete, concrete gains only 9% in next 14 days. So, rate of gain of strength

Predicting 28 Days Compressive Strength of Concrete

Abstract—Concrete structures are designed on the basis of 28 days cylinder crushing strength. 28 days cylinder strength actually represents the characteristic strength of the concrete. It is mandatory to test the concrete cylinders at the age of 28 days as per almost all building code requirements.

What to Do if Concrete Cylinder Test Fails at 28 Days ...

2020-8-28  Why do we test concrete cylinder at 28 days? Concrete gains strength with time after casting. It takes much time for concrete to gain 100% strength and the time for the same is still unknown. The rate of gain of concrete compressive strength is higher during the first 28 days of casting and then it slows down. Read more about it here.
